Woody Allen`s new play `Bullets Over Broadway` panned over nearly all-white cast

New York, April 13: Woody Allen`s new play ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ has garnered some negative reviews for featuring a nearly all-white cast despite it telling the story about a famed Harlem hotspot.

The play centering on the Cotton Club – a nightclub famous for featuring top African-American performers during the Prohibition era – has only one non-white cast member, the New York Daily News reported.

Allen’s rep insisted that it has always been the acclaimed director’s priority to cast the appropriate person for a role regardless of race. (ANI)
